Yes, you are missing something. That variable is only updated during the
inclusion of the toolset files not the inclusion of the Jamfiles. The
Jamfiles are read in first, the toolset files are read in when targets
are created from "within" the Jamfiles. So you are seeing the lingering
effects of that global getting set.
